The most Tim Burton-esque movie that Tim Burton never made
A young boy with the ability to talk to the dead finds himself battling zombies and a witch's curse in this 3D stop-motion film. While ParaNorman is frequently funny, beautifully animated and shows a real love for the horror genre, it also lacks that spark of life that marks out a truly great 'toon. And, while the film looks excellent when presented 'flat', the 3D incarnation of the disc's MVC 2.40:1 1080p encode is rather more hit-and-miss due to the dark nature of the visuals. Otherwise, the disc scores pretty well with a boisterous DTS-HD MA 5.1 mix and plenty of behind-the-scenes extras.
